I poured this not okay beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a cloudy amber color. The beer did not have any head at all and was also devoid of any smell of any kind. I really had high hopes. This was part of a purchase I made online from halftime.com but I did not like most of the beers including this one. I will not buy again.

Amber and hazy appearance with some foam that disappeared quickly. Mild amount of lacing.

Very hoppy smell.

Bitter and hoppy taste with some caramel undertones. I wasn't getting much vanilla. Not much aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is smooth and thin. Not too much carbonation.

Overall a decent beer.
